The New Ministry Dictionary (#1)

A lexicon for state-of-the-art ministerial conversation.

The ministry world is evolving rapidly, and the folks at Merriam-Webster can't seem to keep up. Crack open the latest edition of your dictionary and you'll see what we mean. Concepts essential to Christian leadership are conspicuously absent from its pages.

We're working to remedy this oversight. As dedicated servants of the literary good, we've started an ongoing list of key ministry terms to help you navigate today's ever-changing ministry landscape with cultural intelligence and verbal acumen. So grab a blue pen, open up your dictionary, and add these lexical gems for future reference.

Watch for more dictionary entries coming soon, and add your own in the comments.
